What are the Benefits of Softened Water?
► Cost savings in service, maintenance and replacements of showers, heaters, etc
► Improved efficiency of hot water and heating systems - just 1.6mm of limescale build-up in heating systems will cause a 12% loss in heating efficiency.
► Save some 50% of washing powder and toilet soap consumption and similarly cut the use of shampoos, conditioners and cleaning products.
► Helps certain dry skin conditions such as eczema.
► Saves time - independent studies have confirmed that considerable cleaning time is saved with softened water.
► Removes existing scale deposits in hot water and heating systems as well as scale around taps and stains in baths and basins.
► Softened water has a clean, silky feeling. It makes bath time a luxury without the need for oils or bubble bath liquids.
► Makes hair soft and easy to manage.
► No scum - softened water rinses completely away without leaving scum, even after shaving.
► Makes laundry brighter and glasses and dishes sparkle and shine.
► Makes washing the car easier, reducing streaking and spotting.
► Water softeners are installed in nearly all car washes, commercial laundries and kitchens in hard water areas.
► It is estimated that an ion-exchange water softener could save over £200 per year for an average four person household.
